Question about Rio Forge Sport Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Battery problem My player was working fine and then all of a sudden, it stopped and everything stiffened up...all the keys. When I took out the battery I saw it had almost melted the player where the battery had been. Of course, it doesn't work. I don't think it's repairable, but I don't know if it's a flaw with the player.

Re: battery problem

It sounds like the battery was short circuited. You were lucky there was no fire. It's possible there was a flaw with the battery. If this was a rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery then you might remember these were in the news recently because lots of laptops were bursting into flames. Also a friend of mine had one of these in his remote control plane. After he finished flying one day, he left the battery on charge in his BMW from the cigarette lighter while he went shopping and when he returned the fire brigade were putting his car out!

Ipod nano - stopped working - will not come on anymore

Do the 5 R's suggested in the user's manual first. If those fail, then the player has an internal problem and needs to be replaced.

Touchpad won't work on my Gigabeat F40

Mine did the same, touch pad became erratic then stopped working, I could still access everything when linked to a computer. Then all stopped, on power up I got a 00000010 or 0000020 error and nothing.

I popped the end caps off, removed the two small screws holding the back on and found the strap of wires connecting the hard drive was almost completely dissconnected. Pushed the connector back together , reassembled and now all working

Did my BATTERY short, or my whole PLAYER?

I have yet to see an Mp3 player that can survive a water drop. You can "dry out" the player, and it may work sometimes. Replacing the battery most likely will not fix.

Won't play any songs.

I had this problem with my player (th 1101) when I was transferring songs from iMesh. After awhile I found out that even though I could listen to the files on the computer some wouldn't go on the mp3 player. Looked it up and there is an encoding on some tracks (preimium tracks they call it) that unless you pay for them they won't transfer off the computer (CD, MP3 players ect.). They also had free tracks that works just fine. Hope that helps

Just stopped working!

Thats really weird !!! solution 1: Try hard resetting it (thats putting everything back to like when you bought it). To do that hold the power button 15 seconds. solution 2: If you just bought it, i would say to bring it back at the store you bought for an exchange or refund.
